After two rounds at the NCAA golf championships, the USF women’s team stands in 24th place. The Bulls fired a 635 during the first two days putting the team 59 shots over par halfway through the tournament.

Jill Crowe has the Bulls’ second lowest score after she compiled a two-day total of 158. Crowe stands in a tie for 108.
The individual race is tied at the top between Duke’s Virada Nirapathapongporn and Georgia’s Summer Sirmons. Those two lead the pack at 7-under par, three strokes in front of Arizona’s Lorena Ochoa.
Without Fany Schaeffer, who finished 90th in last year’s championships, the Bulls are struggling to climb out of last place. Outside of Crowe and Martin, USF’s other three players are all mired near the bottom of the field.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny.
